evening. law-enforcement going house-to-house in the greater boston area searching for the terror suspect that is armed and possibly wired with explosives. the fbi and law enforcement searching with the 19 year-old who has managed to elude capture since this fire fight late last night. the second suspect in the monday boston marathon bombing. his brother tamerlan tsarnaev is dead and the boston area was under a lockdown and tell one hour ago urged jews stayed behind locked doors and told they were given the all clear to leave their homes. the largest shutdown in the history of any metropolitan area. here is the timeline. 10:20 p.m. last night and armed robbery reeorted at a 711 near the m.i.t. campus shortly after police received reports of shots fired on the campus. police responded to the scene and discovered in may t. campus police officer john collier shot in his car and was transported where he was pronounced dead. then the brothers hijacked a car then released him unharmed and a gas station but then less than one hour later it after it adjacent to the boston suburb during that chase
that just passed here. this was a key area, an area where a lot of law enforcement was gathering. we saw a truck. there were armed personnel on it. we saw bomb sniffing dogs from the fbi. really, the impression was they were searching for an ied. something you would see in a theater of war, in a combat zone, not here in the streets of boston. you still have a lot of personnel. some have slowly been pulling back. again, it's a very active scene that's going on right now. we don't know the status. we don't know where this individual is, whether he's close. whether he's in custody. but by creating a huge perimeter around this particular area, what they do hope to do is either flush him out, or at least tighten the noose. and so that's what they're trying to do. they are going door-to-door. they are canvassing different homes, they are trying to do a sweep. remember, these people, even though they were on the run, they hijacked -- they basically harnlg acked an individual and then they fled and they were still throwing out bombs we're told either bombs or grenades or some sort of pipe bomb.
the doors locked and not open the door unless there is a uniform identified law enforcement officer on the other side of it. >> part of that process included controlled explosions. police say it was done merely out an abundance of caution. authorities hoping for some evidence as to dzhokhar's whereabouts. nbc news national investigative correspondent michael issakof is on the ground. >> we've been promised a briefing for several hours now that was going to give us an update on where things stood. clearly, it's a fluid situation. the last one we got just about an hour and a half ago was there have been some new leads authorities were pursuing. what that meant we do not know. clearly they do not have tsarnaev in custody right now. they still have very deep concerns about the threat he poses and the threat that others -- that an accomplice or accomplices may pose. and the most significant threat of all is the fact there might be ieds out there like the one found this morning that have been -- that have left on the streets of boston. making it very difficult, even if they get tsarnaev,
quickly walk away from it, what is not normal. that we only have so many law enforcement people. we have a guy in times where the waterway and there may be a normal explanation for it. i get on the metra system and by putting my earphones and a listen to my music or whatever when that is probably not a very smart thing, particularly for a guy like me to do. but it is just being aware -- you know, it is so easy. when i went to vietnam ever went said, stay alert, stay alive. i think people will be a little bit more alert right now, but just look for things that are out of place. is an author.t is ned zsa,ler republican. 'd think throrism comes at all different forms and different faces, not just literally, but metaphorically, too. you cannot say that it is not political or that it is. it is hard to label active terrorism -- acts of terrorism sometimes providing it is up to with identifying terrorism. we sometimes let our guard down and i feel like we do not know when the time is to act. when something should be under suspicion. we wait for something to happen. tough one. is a you are
with police. law enforcement fills say that both are from the russian region near chechnya and have been living in the united states with family members for about a decade. their estranged uncle spoke if maryland a short time ago. >> jihad, turn yourself in. and act forgiveness. if the injured, and those who left, ask forgiveness from these people. if we're ashamed, people are ashame on the family, our family, you put shame on 9 entire chechen. >> across boston, an unprecedented situation. the entire city and metropolitan area, all surrounding suburbs effectively shut down. all mass transit suspended. no a no-fly zone in effect. people have been told to stay inside their homes. >> keep the doors locked, do not open the door unless there is a uniformed, identified law enforcement officer on other side of it, requesting to come inside. >> there have been victims, police say that the bombing suspect shot and killed, 26-year-old sean collier. an m.i.t. patrol officer around 10:30 on campus last night. a short time later, they reportedly carjacked a mercedes suv in cambridge. that led to a po
wounded and is in surgery right now. there is a massive man hunt under way. a lot of law enforcement involved in that. to assist that, we have suspended all service on the public transit service. that will continue until we think it's safe to open all or some of that. we are asking people to shelter in place. in other words to stay indoors with their doors locked and not to open the door for anyone other than a properly identified law enforcement officer and that applies here in watertown where we are right now. also cambridge, newton, belmont, and at this point all of boston. all of boston. this is a serious situation. we are taking it seriously. we are asking the public to take it seriously as well. and assist law enforcement by following those simple instructions. we've got every asset that we can possibly muster on the ground right now. they are doing a terrific job in working in concert with each other but we will need the public to help us help them stay safe. >> thank you governor. as the governor said, this is a rapidly developing situation. within the last half hour we recei
told to shelter in place, as you well know. and as a result of this, law enforcement authorities are very hopeful that they will be able to conclude their search by going door to door. last check, they had about 70% of that accomplished. we're still waiting for an afternoon briefing. we don't know when that will occur. but in the early morning briefing, they did say there were new developments they were trying to run down and firm up and they would bring us those at the afternoon briefing. of course, as you know, things are changing quite rapidly and as a result of that, that briefing may get pushed back once again. so, that's what we know at this point. and they came, the suspects, as you know, came from an area in russia quite close to chechnya. we are still translating those tapes that we got from the father, an interview that he did with reuters. it's in russian, we're translating it. a number of the family members have been speaking out with very diverse opinions on this whole situation. so we're working on those, we'll bring them to you when we have them. maria and andrew,
and it was a scene with, you know, scores of law enforcement, state, federal, you know, bomb teams, s.w.a.t., you name it, they were there. a big perimeter setup for a manhunt to find the second suspect. >> eric, thank you. willie, when you get a sense of the danger right now that faces watertown at this very moment after all that went down last night and the killing of an mit police officer, the car-jacking, the robbing, the bombs in the streets, the ied attached to this body, you get a sense of the suspect. you get a sense in terms of what law enforcement was able to piece together since the bombing in boston where you had pieces of pressure cookers and things that made you think they may be homemade devices and this may be home-grown and this made a little rudimentary, if i may, but now you find out from the work that they have done and all of the pictures and the video they have put together, you find out that they stood there to watch. they stood there to watch after the bombing. that says something. secondly you find out they have been in the united states as long as a year. may have milita
to cell phones? >> i think they didn't they would have to escape. when law enforcement figured out different pieces of this puzzle, they panicked and didn't have an alternative plan -- they were so focused on what they were doing, nothing else became important and obviously, it would have been. >> another photo of the suspect coming in right now, it shows him when he was on the wrestling team. i believe, we're going to put that up in just a second. it just came in. they got it up in the control room. we're not positive, if indeed this gray honda is occupieoccup. it could suggest as well, aps someone else was involved. >> well, maybe, george, but the idea of a stealing a car or carjacking someone else, is an act of desperation. you have seen him acting in a desperate way since basically the 7-eleven. >> yeah that's true. brad, thanks very much. >>> jon karl at the white house right now. we know we're getting more details about the president's briefing in the situation room. >> george, as you can imagine this has consumed the president, entire intelligence and national security teams
does law enforcement approach this scenario? what do you think the next few hours will look like? >> i think it will be a deliberative and careful process. as you say, they are closing in on the suspect and that is tightening. one of the concerns is does this individual have explosives attached to his body, has he taken someone hostage. is that wired explosively and we've seen that in other plots as the net tightened that the individuals decided to use explosives. >> we have boston p.d. on this, there's fbi, there's atf and massachusetts guardsmen. who is in the lead here? >> the lead will be the joint terrorism task force which is led by the fbi. so in a sense, they're organizing all of the constituent agencies and giving direction. i wonder, someone mentioned the events in the last three hour, this all was an attempted robbery. an m.i.t. rob shot and killed, grenades thrown from a vehicle. report of the dead suspect having an ied on his person. characterize, scale from one to ten, level of danger as they get closer to this remaining suspect? >> i would say it's about a level eight. b
trying to escape law enforcement. here's how it played out. around 10:00 p.m. last night, the suspects robbed a store. they then proceeded to fatally shoot an m.i.t. security officer and hijack a mercedes suv. the owner of that vehicle was held hostage for half an hour while the two brothers pulled $800 out of an atm. they released the owner of the mercedes unharmed. police chased the suspects into watertown, where this shootout took place. the suspects exchanged fire with police and threw explosives towards them. at one point, tamerlan sarn ev got out of the car wearing an ied strapped to his chest and was shot by police. his body was run over by dzhokah tsarnaev as he fled the scene. at present the manhunt continues. the police are looking for a younger brother and a possible accomplice. let's bring in nbc justice correspondent, pete williams. this is a quickly developing situation. how many people are the police looking for right now? >> i think they're not sure. i think we can say probably three. dzhokah tsarnaev, the person who is the man with the white hat and the marathon bombin
of fire. i can see a couple of people, some law enforcement, some police with rifles walking the perimeter. again, you've got to imagine about 20, 25 police cars and other vehicles surrounding one particular -- surrounding something. and we think it's a car. and i'm being told by an intel source that it may possibly be somebody known to the younger bomber. erin? >> all right, deb, thank you. and what deb just said there is very important. they're trying to figure out -- at this point, we thought it was just the two brothers. the family members, the friends that we have spoken to, knew nothing about this. the uncle, as we have heard, knew nothing about this. but now, what they're saying, is that they may have had an associate. that may be the need for the interpreter. this was the crucial question all the way through which is how many people may be involved? >> you're definitely going down the right road. that's what we're understanding and we're hearing. but it also could be, i'm being told, they've met someone who may be helpful and the man is not very con ser sant in english. that's why
thousands of law enforcement military personnel searching for this 19-year-old? >> well, they're working very hard obviously to find him. the question is whether or not he is still in the area. you have to do two three things. follow up on any leads they get based on tips, they're going to identify some locations where he might go to seek shelter -- family, friends, neighbors, that sort of thing -- then they'll look at the area they saw him last. that is the area of the shootout. they'll process the scene to see whether there is any blood evidence there that might actually be connected to somebody other than his brother. that would help them determine whether he is injured. >> his 26-year-old brother is now dead. we're told in the shootout with law enforcement he was discovered having explosive, an explosive vest almost like a suicide bomb vest. that's why there is so much concern that perhaps the younger brother, the 19-year-old who is still on the loose right now may also be wearing some sort of explosive device. that could be extremely dangerous. >> sure. that is the reason why they'r
for law enforcement, for civilians, people in the neighborhood. so i want to be careful in what's -- in our reporting. >> we do. they want to take the suspect alive and avoid any casualties. the suspect has already killed a number of people. >> yeah, let's hope no one else is hurt. >> drew, what are you seeing right now. >> just more of the same, erin. just different kinds of vehicles. we saw s.w.a.t. vehicles. we saw different kind of, you know, tactical vehicles all heading down the direction. david fitzpatrick, my producer, is heading that way. we asked him to -- if he sees, smells, smoke to call in immediately to tell us what is happening. but just to recap, other than that first burst of gunfire we haven't heard any gunfire since. but that is what sparked this tremendous amount of activity from local law enforcement heading all in the same direction. and it just seems like in an instant that entire ramped up feeling that we had last night here in downtown watertown has surfaced again where all the police are once again on edge and we're just waiting to find out what's going
brothers and the way they engaged the police is pretty clear they had some training. >> yeah, my senior law enforcement officials are telling me, george, that it's pretty clear these men are paramilitary training. also this very interesting fact. apparently they told the carjacking victim the person that they carjacked that they were, in fact, the marathon bombers. now, law enforcement officials are saying this is the most tense urgent situation that you can think of. that this suspect number two who is the one with the white baseball cap is armed and dangerous and likely to die in a suicide attack. law enforcement offials say it could not be a more dicey, serious situation. also, george, we're also being given some guidance that law enforcement officials believe that these men were forced to ground in part by the release of those pictures and the video yesterday that created massive pressure on them and some law enforcement officials say that's why they took the action that they probably took last night robbing that 7-eleven. >> and, pierre, these guys were armed up, not only the firepower
could be. >> if you lacked at it, we haven't seen the video, but law enforcement authorities, we have seen the video after the bombs went off, at that boston marathon, they described the two suspects, we believe they are these two brothers, one of whom is now dead, the other on the loose, nonchalantly cavalierly walking away confident, cool, as if nothing had happened, even though two bombs within a matter of 12 or 14 seconds went off. let's go thaw this news conference and get an update what is going on. >> you need to do something? >> garden everyone, some comments we want to make, the chief of the water town police force, chief deveaux. we're not going to able to take questions, i'm sorry, i know you have many. first of all, i want to -- we all want to thank the members of the public who have respected our request to stay indoors. we know what an inconvenience it is in water town and in cambridge in particular, that really surrounds the areas where we have asked for this but it's been enormously important and herself to the many many in law enforcement who are trying to do their jo
were the law enforcement officials doing their job. so you have a community that is very much cooperating with law enforcement in this lockdown. everybody understands the importance and the need to stay out of the way and let the officials do their job, as they go literally door to door to juror, to try to find this 19-year-old suspect. so, yes, this has been a day like no other. i can guarantee you, in the city metropolitan area around boston. >> and the thinking, bill, in terms of going door to door, the thinking is, perhaps someone is hiding them in their homes? it's quite fascinating that the police are going door to door in all of these homes in that region. >> the thinking, maria, is that this 19-year-old may be holding somebody hostage in their home. you're not supposed to open the door to anybody unless they identify themselves clearly as a law enforcement official. so it is clear, they are still going door to door, and it is possible, they believe, that this 19-year-old chechen could be holding somebody hostage or could be on the move and trying to, you know, find a l
of that fight. how did he -- and law enforcement is doing a great job, but how is it that he got away? how far could he have gotten? >> well, he could be anywhere. they still -- the operative theory as far as everybody that we have heard as of midday today was that he was still here, or in the immediate boston area. but as one of your guest said, he's a local boy. he knows this area and knows where to hide and where to go. the hope is that they've got him, but he certainly isn't making himself known. and one of the things about keeping everybody inside is that if he does go outside, if he does try and get away, he would be pretty easily spotted. i mean, this is really -- it is like a ghost town with the exception of the military and an awful lot of media waiting here. the thinking is you would know him. this is where they chased him to and where they last had him. so it makes sense that there's a heavy search here. but as you know, the public transit, the amtrak trains, everything has shut down in this whole metropolitan area, and a lot of people are looking for him. >> and there's really only
. there is a massive manhunt under way. a lot of law enforcement involved in that. to assist that, we have suspended all service on the mbta, our public transit service and that will continue until we think it's safe to open all or some of that. we're asking people to shelter in place, in other words, to stay indoors with their doors locked and not to open the door for anyone other than a properly identified law enforcement officer and that applies here in watertown where we are right now, also cambridge, newton, belmont and at this point, all of boston. all of boston. this is the serious situation. we're taking it seriously, we're asking the public to take it seriously, as well and to assist law enforcement by following those simple instructions. we've got every asset that we can possibly muster on the ground right now. they are doing a terrific job and working in concert with each other but we are going to need the public to help us help them stay safe. >> where are you? >> right behind you. thank you. as the governor said this is a rapidly developing situation. we've received information i commun
simply want to do our job. >> they wanted to take him alive. that would have been a huge help for law enforcement if hay had him alive if they had the chance to question him. >> they're being very careful at this point and quite patient on the hopes that perhaps they still can take dzhokhar, even if unexpected. >> let's be clear, they're not being patient and risking the possibility that he's going to get away been they would prefer to take him alive. they will take him dead. they're not going to take the chance again of letting him get away, but being able to talk to him, being able to question him, being able to figure out whether there could be others involved in this would be incredibly valuable for law enforcement here and that would be their preference, for certai i bfbi ofer brad garret i aling ut thi completely conic personality. we hear about this wonderful friend to all of his friends. it's not your usual loner who had no friends out there, and then we know what he is suspected of doing. try to help us through this. >> okay. diane, step out of terrorism just for one second a
this on u.s. soil, we often look for answers by changing laws. was there anything done that we could prevent this? and how to we not over reacted? our panel michael barrett, mike baker, and diligence. we have rod wheeler, former dc homicide detective, and fox news contributor, welcome, michael, start with you, this is our knee-jerk reaction, something like this happens, lawmakers almost don't want to miss the opportunity to jump in do something, many times with great intentions of trying to stop it from happening again, but they may or may not do sense, first i heard, these were individuals who came here seeking asylum, you could practically hear the door of asylum slammed shut? >> i think you are right, but it does not make sense, people are going to come in. we have any number of people coming in. there are some things that could be done, but this is about know forcing existing laws and understanding the laws that the nature of the threat has changed. one big thing we have now since 9/11 with department of homeland security a bunch of intelligence fusion center that integrated and state an
with this legislation. we are a safer country when law- enforcement knows who is here, has their fingerprints, photos, conduct background checks, and no wonder these to look at needles through haystacks. both the refugee program and asylum program have been significantly strengthened in the past five years, such that we are much more careful about screening people in determining who should or should not be coming into the country. if there are any changes that our homeland security experts tell us we need to be made -- s, security experts tell us need to be made -- a there were widespread erroneous reports of arrests being made. this emphasizes how important it is to let the facts come out before jumping to any conclusions. mostieve this is the balanced piece of immigration legislation that has been ever produced. the american people and all of our colleagues should read this bill over the next few weeks. they will have ample time to look at every page and every paragraph before we go to markup in the committee. what they will find is a bill the secures our borders, combats the overstay, cracks down
be an accomplice as well. police and law enforcement are searching high and low for those two men. meantime, in watertown, massachusetts, that's right near boston, a mass impolice and military presence where officials believe the 19-year-old man dzhokhar tsarnaev could be holed up. the crews are planning to wait him out. local police say they could continue through the weekend. nearby in cambridge, that is right near the home of the suspected bombers and their relatives, police plan to perform some sort of controlled explosion. also right now in southern massachusetts, the campus of umass dartmouth is being evacuated. the school has confirmed someone connected to the bombings is enrolled as a student there. we're trying to clear up those details for you. we know this began last night with reports of gunfire on the m.i.t. campus. police say the man shot and killed 26-year-old sean collier, an m.i.t. police officer, who was just sitting in his cruiser. his broad was riddled with several gunshots. the two men car jacked a mercedes suv at gunpoint. police began a chase while those suspects were
considered as a possible hideout? >> well, as you know, chris, they started with a 20-square-block area. law enforcement suggests they've been through about 80% of that. we are looking for a needle in a haystack. and look, we know his brother took a lot of hits in the gunfight with law enforcement last night before he was killed. you might suggest that this 19-year-old man we're looking for, he may have been hit, too. so he could have crawled under a building someplace. he could be barricaded inside of a house somewhere by himself, or holding a hostage, or he may, just may have been able to steal another car and our worst case scenario and get out of town. once law enforcement finishes this search of this 20 square block, then they have to regroup and figure out what cars have been stolen in the area that he might have used to get away from, or did we miss him and do we go back again? and, chris, i know we're going into the weekend, but how long do you keep a city like this bottled up and tell everybody to stay inside? >> well, is there any way of tracking besides basically hard target, i me
talked about the fact and law enforcement talked about the fact that they'd been through about 60% to 70% of the entire area. i'm assuming that in the hours since then, it's now, of course, 4:05 eastern time, but they made progress close to 100%. >> reporter: yeah, but what's the area? remember, the entire city is in lockdown now. they have told everybody in boston not to leave their homes, not to open their doors, except to law enforcement officers. so while they might be able to inspect the immediate area around here in watertown, it seems a herculean task to be able to do that for the entire metropolitan region that's essentially in lockdown right now. look, there's a massive police and military presence, actually, here, actually, it's right behind me, the staging area is right behind where i'm standing here at the parking lot of the watertown arsenal here. we've had early this morning convoys of military humvees, bus loads of police and state troopers coming in here and assembling for what we thought was going to be some sort of massive confrontation or assault here. we had blackhawk
election campaigning on friday the upper house has agreed to revise the public offices election law. people in the country will get their first taste of online campaigning, starting with this summer's upper house race. nhk world has the details. >> reporter: the bill was passed unanimously by the upper house. from now on, political parties, candidates and voters will be allowed to enlist public support on websites and social networking services. japanese law has long limited the number of paper documents that can be distributed during official campaigns. the rule was meant to keep candidates with a financial edge from getting an unfair advantage. but the law, enacted in 1950, did not envision the internet. documents and images in cyber space have been regulated in the same way. japan has lagged behind other countries such as the united states, britain and germany, where there are few restrictions on internet election campaigning. >> translator: communication tools are completely different from the old days. it's good to update the law. >> translator: i'm all for the revision. i'm busy with
police are also serving on the scene. there simply could not be a stronger concentration of law enforcement personnel anywhere in the the country right now as there is in the small blue collar town of watertown, massachusetts that find itself so in the middle of the focus this morning. you have to believe that folks felt that the worst of this had taken place on monday at that finish line, and those two bombings that left 160 people injured and three people dead, but last night it exploded in a whole new way, an explosion, a car chase with these two suspects after a quick stop at a 711, they carjacked another man, stole his mercedes. thankfully they spared his life. he was pushed out of his own car, he ran into the 711 and said they are trying to kill me. the people in the 711 thought that he was drunk until they finally realized that he was just in complete shock and was indeed revealing to them that he had literally just been in the car driving around for 30 minutes with these two suspects. what a harrowing experience that must have been for him. then tamerlan the older brothe
to a law in san francisco. why some property owners may have to pay thousands of dollars more. >>> and we are following that breaking news again out of boston. a massive man hunt under way. a neighborhood under lock down. we'll be right back. >>> welcome back time now 6:12. breaking news in the bombing case. live pictures we're looking in the watertown, massachusetts area. a lot of police activity happening right now. we're trying to follow it all. we can tell you one suspect in the bombing case is dead. another one is on the run. police have a massive man hunt. they told everyone in the boston area and surrounding areas stay inside. don't go to work, don't go to school, don't open businesses. stay inside. now law enforcement agencies have confirmed that the two suspects are brothers. from the russian region of chechnya. stay right here with ktvu news for more. >>> back here at home an hour from right now runners in san francisco will start a race that will honor the victims of the marathon bombing. tara moriarty is at the ferry building in san francisco. that is where the race will start
of the resources from law enforcement and military on the ground and some we can see here. helicopters from police and 50 guardsmen and more military humvees coming in earlier and dozens of law enforcement if not hundreds and vehicles scattered across water and the city. is this enough based on what you understand they are trying to do at the moment? >> it's a tremendous deployment of resources and certainly you have to defer to the judgment of the officials on the ground if it's the right amount. obviously the more, the better in this type of situation. you have to look at the possibility as michael mentioned earlier that there could be additional devices placed around the greater boston area. you also have to look at any other potential components to what could be a broader conspiracy. we don't know the steps they took to first deal with him and try to get him to surrender if he is holed up and secondly to understand where there might be additional devices around the greater boston area and third, to identify any other individuals who might be in any way associated with the brothers is where the
law enforceme enforcement. give us a few details of the military hardware you're seeing. >> right now so far it's been split. and i would say the majority of it is being the massachusetts state police, the local campus police are sort of doing perimeter security around the campus as they try to help students get off campus. a lot of students hanging out outside here trying to get a ride home or perhaps someone to pick them up. then we saw the helicopter off in the distance and we know just sort of trying to look through the buildings and the trees, i know it landed somewhere in the interior of the campus. and i know that the dorm -- dzhokhar's dorm is actually over on that other side of campus. i don't know if the helicopter landed near the dorm, but it was definitely on sort of the other side of campus from the entrance where we are and where a lot of the students are coming out. then we saw that huge tactical vehicle from the massachusetts state police roll in after about four to five police cars came through. and then literally like i said just in the last ten minutes off in the di
imaginable law enforcement vehicle today come through this area as they were doing those house to house searches on 20 blocks here in watertown and we saw that increased police presence but they weren't walking nearly as quickly nor with as much purpose as we have seen in the last couple of minutes. clearly there is something going on. there were reports of shots fired at another area of watertown not where we are standing right now. there are a lot more people on the streets and we're not just talking about law enforcement. that's because as soon as we heard at that press conference after 6:00 p.m. that the stay indoors had been lifted, we saw so many people going out on the streets. they are bringing their dogs out for a walk and as those vehicles are pealing around the corner and down the street behind me, there were a number of people gathered around the street corner. they started cheering, clapping, saying go get him. where exactly they were headed, that is being looked into. we don't want to dive into speculation at this point but as you can see, there is a lot of focus from peop
with what mike levine is hearing from his federal law enforcement sources suggesting that these individuals may have been trained overseas and that the fed are looking into that right now. a lot of questions, but certainly grave concern that these are possibly foreign-born terrorists. >>brian: just building on some of the things you threw out there. if these are -- the 5'7" middle eastern man, if people think there is more than one, dressed like a college kid in a college town, it almost looks like they picked up an outfit, an overemphasis of wanting to blend in until they no longer wanted to blend in. >> we've always seen this. one thing terrorists have learned over the years is that they do need to blend in. they're not going to show up -- even back as long ago as 9/11, those members were clean shaven, looking western when they got on the plane. this is not new. however, it is interesting. i was noting when you see that suspect in the white baseball cap, it is intentionally backwards. that is such an american thing to do. when he was walking, i thought he looked very american in the video
we know from law enforcement officials, stuck around, hung around, lingered. easily found afterward. it doesn't seem like they have expertise to be sociopaths and terrorists and horrible individuals, but they didn't -- they didn't have the wherewithal necessarily to get away. >> that kind of terrorism can occur whether it's international or domestic, tim mcveigh, one or two cohorts and not much else. we do think of things as big conspiracies, it sometimes doesn't happen. >> counterterrorism efforts are always developing. evolution of strategy. assuming this went down as we now believe it did, with two brothers acting alone or in concert with someone else. what adjustments will the law enforcement, counterterrorism community need to make? >> one thing for the american public to suspect, we are a big society with lots of mobility and lots of people coming in and out. there is going to be some level of risk for that, we saw that op monday. but we still had the boston marathon. it begins with our expectations of what kind of safety we have. there is going to be -- we don't know the fact
: they believe that they had paramilitary training and law enforcement officials are saying that the way that they did the operation on monday, how calm, cool and collected they were, the cold-blooded nature of it, the fact that, you knne of the suspects we're seeing near an 8-year-old boy that he clearly would have been able to see that would be in the line fire anddeo this is described as the most urgent situation that law enforcement officials can recall since the sniper attacks and also never been a situation where an entire city has been on lockdown since 9/11. >> you see the picture, you see the bomber and the backpack and see the little boy, the youngest victim of the boston marathon bombings right there. what you were saying, cooley walked away -- >> reporter: george, we're also picking up some scanner traffic where the suspect is posting online saying i will kill you all. you killed my brother. >> okay, that is more chilling information. i want to go to byron pitts outside the suspect's house in cambridge. we see the police waving everyone away there, byron. >> can you hear me t
due respect of law enforcement, you see pictures like this of all day, law enforcement on the street, overwhelming amount of force. why is it taking so long to find this one individual? >> i think you have to take it one step at a time. the safety of the law enforcement officers is of it most concern, they are priority in the case. the faster you move the more danger you put yourself in. you take it one place at a time. the officer and s.w.a.t. teams, hostage rescue teams, anybody involved in the operation is basically protected to the hilt. they are not moving very fast. they have to check for bombs and adversary himself and lots of nooks and crannies in that location. it will take a little bit of time. >> reporter: we heard about standing perimeter, some say it's about 20 blocks. city of boston and some of the outlying areas. it makes me think back to 24 hours ago at this time yesterday, we were all awaiting the f.b.i. press briefing wondering who we were going to see. we haven't learned anything from the f.b.i. 24 hours. what do you make of the last 24 hours. is this part of the f
of military vehicles, buses of police and motorcycles and other armed law enforcement officers. all congregating in the staging area behind me across from the mall in a parking lot. it looked like they were preparing for some sort of confrontation if not an assault. there were a lot of sirens going on. that activity seems to have abat abated. they think they know where the suspect is. clearly there was a pretty good sense here watching this that they seemed to be preparing for what could be a very violent confrontation with the suspect or suspects. shortly about a couple of hours ago now, governor patrick came out and we were told that the entire city of boston was under lockdown. that seemed to escalate the concerns. we don't know right now as we have been told, they believe they have the suspect cornered in an area and the second suspect is on this amtrak train. then the threat, a largered in threat may have abated, but you have to keep in mind they found the ied in the city of boston that has to raise the question are there more out there they have to be concerned about? even if
with armored soldiers or law enforcement officials with assault rifles. we've seen the blackhawks. we've learned the blackhawks are part of the massachusetts natural guard. they're used for transport. we've seen them in the last 15 or 20 minutes passing over. this is very active, and if this guy has been up as i have when i first started to pursue him at 11:00 last night, he's tired. he may be getting cornered in the final 30%. this is very dangerous. on top of that, we know from the controlled explosives that has happened in the last few hours that there are explosives out there. i just want to remind people. while it may look calmer in the scenes we're seeing today, the scene that i rolled up on here behind some 30 or 40 law enforcement officers, everything, fbi, swat, atf, boston police department, everything right into the blocks behind me about three or four streets, and it was aster phying a gun 5 as i've ever seen in iraq or afghanistan. this is a very violent individual, just like his brother. he is feeling perhaps more cornered and tired. it is imperative that they listen, th
law enforcement officials would be thinking at this time. >> well, i think the main goal right now is to get this other guy in custody before he hurts anybody else and try to close out the situation. he's a very, very dangerous person. i don't think anyone is safe in that area until he's apprehended. and it sounds to me like he doesn't want to be taken alive. so there could be another chutout before this whole thing is over. >> that's what you speculate because the other suspect had an ied strapped to his chest? >> absolutely. we don't know the whole background on these guys. we don't know what their motive was. we don't know exactly all the things. a lot of it is going to be -- we're going to determine that in the next several hours. but it doesn't sound like they want to be captured or he wants to be captured and go through the justice system. i think he's going to shoot it out within way or the other. >> let me ask you a quick question. can this be done by two individuals? meaning do you need more of a support system to get all of the materials that were clearly required to this
felt that the fbi and law enforcement officers knew far more about the suspect van they were letting on. that appears to be the case. in the last few minutes we have decided to reveal what ap has been saying, that the two suspects are brothers from chechnya. >> in deed, brothers from chechnya. we believe their approximate ages, in their early 20's. possibly one of them, possibly suspect number two, who now has been named dzohkar tsarnaev, if i am pronouncing it correctly, may even have a massachusetts driver's license. one ofnow that he was the persons in the vehicle, that carjacking that took place where there was the shootout with police, or suspect number one, who has not been named and who is now deceased, and suspect number two remains at large as a result of that shootout. police have been for many hours looking for the second suspect. it is not clear, though -- his brother, we now know, sustained very serious injuries, especially to the torso, possibly from a massive explosion of the device being detonated. we don't know if the second suspect sustained injuries in any way. what i
which the younger brother escaped. according to one law enforcement source, actually driving over his brother's body. here is the brother's uncle in an emotional plea delivered late this morning. >> i say dzhokhar, if you're alive, turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness. and the victims, from the injured and from those who left, ask for forgiveness from these people. >> we already obviously are learning a lot about these two suspects. we know that dzhokhar who is 19 years old, first came to the united states in 2002, he was 8 years old. his family, he came here on a tourist visa. we know with his mother and his -- at least with his mother. let's go back to the aunt now speaking in canada. >> naturally, i guess, you know, whatever i feel will come out. natural. it is so natural. what is so different about it? >> have you talked to police at all or -- >> i haven't talked -- nobody is contacting me. i called fbi first line. fbi line. if you have any hints, let us know. that's the number i called because knowing these two boys, knowing -- believing, strongly believing they wouldn't do t
claritin, an allergy medicine, and things of that sort. >> we haven't seen the video, but law enforcement authorities who have seen the video after the bombs went off at that boston marathon, they describe the two suspects we believe they are these two brothers one of whom is now dead and one is still on the loose as sort of nonchalantly cavalierly walking away very confident, very cool as if nothing really had happened even though two bombs within a matter of 12 or 14 seconds went off. let's go to this news conference and get an update on what's going on. >> testing. is that better? thank you. governor first. >> do you need to do something? >> no. >> good afternoon everyone. just a couple of points we want to make, myself, the mayor, colonel albin and chief of the watertown police force, we're not going to be able to take questions. i'm sorry. i know you have many. first of all, i want to -- we all want to thank the members of the public who have respected our request to stay indoors. we know what an inconvenience it is in watertown and in cambridge in particular, but really throughout t
? >> well, first of all, is public safety, of course. there are armed law enforcement officers, federal, state, local, out there trying to get this guy. another suspect is armed. may even have a suicide vest on. they have additional explosives. unfortunately, civilians will just get in the wake. that would be a terrible -- terrible tragedy if someone comes out of the door a think it is in the vicinity of where the suspect is and someone gets shot. very important that people stay and of the late, let law-enforcement do their job. get this person, apprehend them and start to figure out what else we need to worry about and then, obviously, go back to figure out what we missed, we should have known, what the connections are inside or outside of the country. dagen: can you give us any prospective? these two brothers had been in the u.s. for at least ten years coming year originally from chechnya to my coming here with roughly 2002-2003 based on reports. and then executing allegedly this bombing at the boston marathon. can you compare this to anything of this country has ever seen or face bef
